Set on the Waikiki Beach Walk, an eight-acre entertainment district encompassing fine dining, exclusive boutiques, and upbeat entertainment, this 400+ room glass and steel tower is within a barefoot stroll of those famous beaches. You’ll find plenty to keep you occupied on property as well, from the infinity pool with lanai deck to poolside service that features bento box lunches courtesy of Executive Chef Shoji Namatame. The light and airy guest accommodations range from studios to three-bedroom suites with laundries and state-of-the-art kitchens, many with inspiring Pacific Ocean views. At the spa, indulge in personalized pampering, such as the Gemstone Spa Treatment, which uses oils infused with diamonds, emeralds, rubies or sapphires.
In the Area
Surrounded by world-class designer boutiques including Luxury Row, DFS T-Galleria, and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, the hotel is steps away from shops like Gucci, Chanel and Dior as well as high-end restaurants like Roy’s Waikiki. Warm water, a sandy ocean floor and gentle waves make Waikiki the ideal place for visitors to learn to surf. Learn from the pros at Hans Hedemann Surf School. Take in panoramic views with a hike at famous Diamond Head, a saucer-shaped crater formed around 300,000 years ago that offers hiking trails and incredible coastal views. Head to KCC Farmers Market on Saturdays to graze on freshly prepared local foods like fried green tomatoes and mochi-covered strawberries. Or head across town for the innovative brunch menu at star-chef Lee Anne Wong’s Koko Head Café. Think breakfast congee with Portuguese sausage, soft-poached egg, cheddar and cinnamon-bacon croutons or a peanut butter, banana tempura sandwich with bacon, local honey and toasted coconut.
How to Get There
Everything was satisfactory.I used the kitchen very conveniently and there were washing machines and dryers, so I used it very well after playing in the water.I liked the location because there were many places to eat around.
From the moment we set foot in the lobby, my husband and I felt like part of the ohana. There were just so many small moments where the staff were not only engaging but engaged with us. Whether it was Aja and Melissa on the pool deck ensuring we were cosy on a blustery day, Timothy, in the lobby, who remembered us after a four day stay and asked how we found the room, the chef at the In-Yo Cafe who was genuinely curious about how we chose the property or the farewell hug from the bell captain - everyone was amazing. All those little moments just combined to get you right in the Alohas. Mahalo everyone. Same time next year?
This was a great surprise. Not on the water front but one line behind, has sea views, great room with kitchen, amazing service, beach bag and towels, good location. Many nice restaurants and bars within walking distance.
I stayed at 16th floor and when I opened the lanai anytime, food smell came to the entire room. I do not know where the smell came. But bbq smell and other food smell came to entire room all the time. The two single beds were too small.
we were returning to Waikiki to visit family and had decided to try a recently remodeled off the beach property. It was a total fail on every one of our requirements and within 15 mins I was on the phone with the Trump hotel, having enjoyed the property in 2012. We were fortunate to find a one bedroom partial ocean view on the 20th floor for $100 more a night than the disaster we had originally booked. What a steal. For that extra $100 a night we got a brand new looking one bedroom condo with fully equipped full size kitchen, full living/dining room, marble bath (tub and shower), balcony and washer/dryer with detergent and fabric sheets. We struggled for the entire week trying to figure out what a full ocean view that was different from our partial view, since we had 180 degree view of nothing but blue skies and ocean!
The staff are amazing and earn their tips. The breakfast buffet was mediocre and the one thing that could afford a step up. This is a minor complaint as there are tons of other options in the area.
I feel so lucky that the Trump had room for us at the last minute. Thanks for coming to our rescue and delivering top notch quality.
Thanks for the veterans discount, too. Very much appreciated.
